. >>guest: the timing is everything. we had our c.e.o. conference last week in washington, dc. i asked the c.e.o.'s, how many think there will be a deal by the end of the year, a credible and substantive deal, two-thirds said no. i said when there is a deal, what percentage of you would probably increase your spending, do what gerri is describing, including hiring more people, and more than two-thirds said they would. so you can see there is this pent up demand to get going but they are so unsure where tax rates will be, where health care rates will be, where economic activity will be, they are just holding their powder. >>shepard: one thing for certain: there will be a level austerity measures, there will be cutbacks. >>guest: that is why you see the market up-and-down. so, up on jubilation that possibly there will be a deal. down on the realization that any deal means what? higher taxes? that means less money for consumers to spend. austerity on the part of government that means cutting back on entitlement programs and less activity there. that is not a trickly vibrant picture for the year

in richmond, virginia, educated at washington university and later learned a ph.d. from yale. he spent his first ten years as a newspaper man mostly doing general assignment reporting, and i bet if i called on many of you, you could easily name his novels; "the right stuff," "in our time," "the bonfire of the vanities" and many more, and now "back to blood" which reflects miami back to all of us. how are we going to react to that? he is credited with the birth of new journalism and the death of the american novel by some. he is the mark twain of our time. how lucky are we to have a moment in time with him? and what better way to start this conversation -- hopefully i can get them to come to the stage -- than with a published author in his own right and a man whose name is synonymous with leadership, our own former mayor, manny diaz. manny diaz, let me turn it to you. hopefully, we can get him up here, and tom wolfe. please welcome them.
